George Orwell Quote: “We make you pay for the water you drink, for the food you eat, for the wars we need, for the crimes we commit. We make you dedicate the most important part of your life to us, but we give you wages and tell you they allow you to buy stuff and pay for your needs to make us richer. We call this freedom.”
George Orwell Quote: “Saints should always be judged guilty until they are proved innocent.”
George Orwell Quote: “Sentimental, you say? Anti-social? Oughtn’t to prefer trees to men? I say it depends what trees and what men.”

George Orwell Quote: “Beggars do not work, it is said; but, then, what is WORK? A navvy works by swinging a pick. An accountant works by adding up figures. A beggar works by standing out of doors in all weathers and getting varicose veins, chronic bronchitis, etc. It is a trade like any other; quite useless, of course – but, then, many reputable trades are quite useless.”
George Orwell Quote: “I’m fat, but I’m thin inside. Has it ever struck you that there’s a thin man inside every fat man, just as they say there’s a statue inside every block of stone?”
George Orwell Quote: “He was the tormentor, he was the protector, he was the inquisitor, he was the friend.”
George Orwell Quote: “A peace that is truly permanent would be the same as a permanent war.”

And by the time the sheep had quieted down, the chance to utter any protest had passed, for the pigs had marched back into the farmhouse.”

George Orwell Quote: “Football, a game in which everyone gets hurt and every nation has its own style of play which seems unfair to foreigners.”
George Orwell Quote: “The quickest way of ending a war is to lose it.”
George Orwell Quote: “In Newspeak there is no word for ‘Science’. The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc.”

George Orwell Quote: “Truth becomes untruth if uttered by your enemy.”
George Orwell Quote: “It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children.”
George Orwell Quote: “What kind of people would control this world had been equally obvious. The new aristocracy was made up for the most part of bureaucrats, scientists, technicians, trade-union organisers, publicity experts, sociologists, teachers, journalists and professional politicians. These people, whose origins lay in the salaried middle class and the upper grades of the working class, had been shaped and brought together by the barren world of monopoly industry and centralised government.”
George Orwell Quote: “Probably the battle of Waterloo was won on the playing-fields of Eton, but the opening battles of all subsequent wars have been lost there.”
George Orwell Quote: “The common people, on the whole, are still living in the world of absolute good and evil from which the intellectuals have long since escaped.”
George Orwell Quote: “Power-worship blurs political judgment because it leads, almost unavoidably, to the belief that present trends will continue. Whoever is winning at the moment will always seem to be invincible.”
George Orwell Quote: “To hang on from day to day and from week to week, spinning out a present that had no future, seemed an unconquerable instinct, just as one’s lungs will always draw the next breath so long as there is air available.”
George Orwell Quote: “What opinions the masses hold, or do not hold, is looked upon as a matter of indifference. They can be granted intellectual liberty becasue they have no intellect.”
George Orwell Quote: “The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.”
George Orwell Quote: “Cricket is a game full or forlorn hopes and sudden dramatic changes of fortune and its rules are so ill-defined that their interpretation is partly an ethical business.”
George Orwell Quote: “The mind should develop a blind spot whenever a dangerous thought presented itself. The process should be automatic, instinctive. Crimestop, they called it in Newspeak.”
George Orwell Quote: “And it is a great thing to die in your own bed, though it is better still to die in your boots.”
George Orwell Quote: “Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control’, they called it: in Newspeak, ‘doublethink’.”
George Orwell Quote: “If you kept the small rules, you could break the big ones.”
George Orwell Quote: “The secret of rulership is to combine a belief in one’s own infallibility with a power to learn from past mistakes.”
George Orwell Quote: “By preaching the doctrine that nothing is to be admired except steel and concrete, one merely makes it a little surer that human beings will have no outlet for their surplus energy except in hatred and leader worship.”
